Learning Journeys Workshops

Posted on
Date: Tuesday, 31st July 2018
Time: 01:00 PM
Location: Ideation Studio, Building 22, Buckland St, Chippendale

Complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity are the three most important capabilities for thriving in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  These are not traditionally developed through legacy learning and development systems (human or digital) because they require real-world, purposeful problems and contexts, the ability to work across silos, new measurement models and courageous leadership. Learning design for teachers is about creating the conditions where students can take responsibility for their own learning by invoking their own passion and purpose and the agency to pursue these through a learning journey in contexts where the outcome is not known in advance.
The purpose of the Learning Journey Platform is to enhance self-directed learning capabilities, and thus the resilient agency, of students, teachers and leaders and schools across the world. It provides scaffolding support for people in authentic enquiry learning journeys which contribute measurably to data-informed local solutions that matter and empower self-directed, resilient learners. ‘Learning Power’ is a term which describes this approach. Resilient people are a prerequisite for resilient and sustainable practices at all levels of society.
The Connected Intelligence Centre (CIC)  is in the process of becoming a foundation partner to the Learning Journeys Platform and you are invited to be part of this exciting development.
